    I am listening to the cantata now. I heard much of it. It was very professionally done. I hope the young lady that fainted is okay. Or at least that is what appeared to happen. So many songs new to me in this cantata. Thanks for sharing. No snow here but we had high winds recently.

    Thanks Mary for the link to the Cantata. It was lovely and I enjoyed it immensely. I hope the choir member who became ill is okay. Merry Christmas to all of you at Zion.

      Lovely, Mary. I’ve always wanted to hear you play. Hope the young lady is ok. It can get hot in robes, and standing so long.
      Put your feet up and relax! Our choir has never resumed and I miss singing in it.

    The Cantata was very good. Thank you for the link to it. This really puts the Christmas Spirit in me. Heard our church one this morning also. Your piano playing was excellent you had nothing to worry about

    The cantata was very well done! You are a wonderful musician and did a great job! Thank you for sharing! We won’t be doing Lessons and Carols in our church again this year, so you brought Christmas to me!

    Thank you, Mary, for sharing your cantata. It was lovely. I especially enjoyed “Silent Night” and “Let there be Peace on Earth.” I wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas Season.

    The cantata was beautiful! Now I understand why you had to practice so much. I’m sure you’re glad that’s behind you for another year but at the same time feeling satisfied that your performance was flawless.

      Gloria from CC – thank you, Gloria! I’m happy so many readers watched it LIVE. I am glad it’s behind me but at the same time it really is very rewarding – the candlelight service almost brings tears to my eye, it’s so moving to me.

    Just beautiful, Mary!! Your playing was wonderful and the choir did a beautiful job. I wish everyone in the world could hear Let There Be Peace on Earth and truly listen to it and try to bring only peace to all. Thank you for sharing.

    So beautiful Mary! I listened to it today when I could really enjoy it. That’s the kind of Christmas music I like to hear. The religious carols of old with so much meaning. Let There Be Peace on Earth is my most favorite song. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Mary this was beautiful! I have missed a Cantata so this helped bring me back into the Christmas feeling. What a lovely song to sing together at the end after Silent Night. Thank you for making it possible for us to see it. Sure wish I could have seen it Sunday night if we had power but I am grateful I could this evening.
